Zimbabwe’s main opposition MDC Alliance has called on South African President and leader of the governing ANC party, Cyril Ramaphosa to intervene and caution his fellow liberation struggle colleagues in Zanu PF.
This follows an attack on MDC Alliance leader Nelson Chamisa’s convoy in Masvingo rural, some 300km from the capital Harare last week.
MDC alliance convoy vehicles were smashed, stoned, roads barricaded and some members of Nelson Chamisa’s delegation were injured.
The alliance had been on a mobilization campaign ahead of the 2023 national elections and by-elections scheduled for vacant seats.
MDC Alliance Vice President Tendai Biti says it’s time for President Cyril Ramaphosa and SADC to intervene in Zimbabwe.
Biti is urging Ramaphosa to help keep his liberation struggle colleagues the Zanu PF in check.
The ruling Zanu PF blames the MDC Alliance leader for the violence in Masvingo.
The party’s Tafadzwa Mugwadi says Zanu-PF supporters were provoked.
In September last year, the ANC sent a delegation of high-ranking party leaders to Zimbabwe for talks, amid tensions in the neighbouring state.
The MDC is now calling on the leader of the governing party in South Africa, to do something as Zimbabwe’s political and economic situation deteriorates.
